The Oregon Symphony, founded in 1896, has grown to be one the finest major orchestras in the nation, serving more than 300,000 people throughout the region.
The Symphony's value to this community goes far beyond the music—it is the cultural centerpiece of Oregon, helping to attract business, revenues and an educated workforce to the area. Further, the Symphony is a valuable music education resource for the children of Oregon and southwest Washington. We ask for your support so that the Oregon Symphony may continue its mission of service to our region.
There are many ways to support the Oregon Symphony: individually or through your business or foundation; making annual gifts, grants, sponsorships or planned gifts. Gifts may be for general support of the Symphony's ongoing programs, or may be designated for a particular purpose or for the endowment fund. The Oregon Symphony gratefully recognizes its supporters at all levels.
You’re a young(ish) music fan under 40 with more enthusiasm than cash. You love living in a town with Portland’s vibrant cultural life, you love the experience of live orchestral music, and you really love what Carlos Kalmar and his band do onstage at the Schnitz. You love attending the occasional concert … but you aren’t ready for a subscription. (We understand. Who knows what they’re doing that far in advance?)
The Oregon Symphony’s new Young Patron Pass is for you. The pass may be purchased for a tax-deductible gift of $100 and will allow you to purchase two $10 tickets to any of our regular classical series concerts. You’ll be seated in the front right orchestra level, where you’ll have premium seating in front of the violas and will be the first to know what stunning and exotic footwear Jennifer Arnold is sporting!
But that’s not all. For every $50 you spend on tickets, your friends at the Oregon Symphony will slide you an extra ticket for FREE. That’s a lot of music for not much money.
To get started: Call the Oregon Symphony’s Ticket Office at 503-228-1353 (10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday), snap up your $100 Young Patron Pass, and start ordering your $10 tickets.
